When I first got the galaxy note 9 at launch, I was blown away.  It’s truly a great phone, and highly recommended by nearly all sites across the world wide web.  I try to keep an open mind when I buy a phone, because I want to keep it for personal use, not just a review.  So with that, I give you my latest purchase.  The Cloud Silver Galaxy Note 9!

I’ve been using the Galaxy Note devices since they first launched, and I’ve yet to have one that I didn’t like.  This one is no exception, it’s sleek and functional like all the rest.

I’ve learned that Samsung has been doing this for some time, and they keep trying to make this phone better.  They’ve outdone themselves with this one, but I still think they can do more.  This phone has ALL of the bells and whistles, and it’s sure to please most users out there.   However, that doesn’t mean it’s perfect for everyone.  example.

My first galaxy note 9 was the metallic copper model, with the exynos processor.  I purchase this versions, because previous version of this processor worked great in the US market.  Well, to my surprise…I was not happy with the battery life.  It just couldn’t make it through a full day for me, and I don’t know why.  The only band it was missing was band 71, so I figured it could work great.  None the less, it only got me about 5 to 5.5 hours regularly…and I was just not having it.  For the money I paid, I wanted more.  The phone has a 4000mAh batter inside, so it should be GREAT.  RIGHT?  Wrong.  For some reason it failed me, so I had to sell it.  I was happy that I kept my galaxy note 8 at the time, and could fall back on that which I did.  It gave me the same performance, and same battery life. So posted a couple of videos letting users know MY experience, and was happy to share my thoughts to those if they were on the fence about upgrading. Later on down the line, I stared to miss my Note 9, because I wasn’t sure if I would want to use the note 8 for another year.  Well, I did what I said I wouldn’t do, which is SELL the note 8.  But I’m happy I did, because I was able to grab the new color of the Note 9, cloud silver.  It’s truly a sexy looking device, and battery on this one has actually been decent so far in my testing.  I’ve getting about 6 or more hours of screen on time on a single charge, and I’m hoping that gets better with time.

I’m planning on staying with this phone, as I always keep the latest galaxy note device in hand alongside the latest iPhone.  This year has been great for tech heads, and phone lovers.  So many phones to select from, but that too makes it hard to decide if you are like me.  I want them all.

All in all, I’m so far really happy with all the features of the Note 9, because they are very familiar.  If it’s not broken, then well…you know the rest.  I’ll keep you all updated on my findings with this Snapdragon model of the Note 9, as I think you guys were right.  It will give me a better experience on battery than the exynos model did.  Time will tell.  Video unboxing at the break…
